Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a quick and easy fun fold card featuring the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and the baby wipe technique! Initially I started out trying to make a simple stamping card, but that just wasn’t happening! Lol I picked out the colors I wanted to use and even decided to do a fun fold, but then things just quickly changed from there. I thought the leaves would be super cool with the baby wipe technique, then why not add some heat embossing and embellishments? While this may look a little complicated, this is one of the quickest and easiest cards I’ve made in a while!
You will first start with the card base, which is Cinnamon Cider cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I cut at 2 ¼” strip off the front fold and used the small triple leave to heat emboss in Gold Embossing Powder:
Next, cut a 2” x 4” strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, which will be layered onto the 2 ¼” x 4 ¼” strip of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, and cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, which will be for the inside of the card. I used the small splatter stamp in Bumblebee ink all over the 2” strip of cardstock and along the top and bottom of the 4” piece of cardstock. On a baby wipe that I folded into a square, I randomly used drops of Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Merry Merlot, and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Ink Refills, and then quickly stamped the leaf stamps on the baby wipe and then onto the cardstocks as shown. The reason why I say quickly, is because the colors on the baby wipe start to bleed into each other, if you look closely, you can see how bright and vibrant the leaves are on the bottom 2” strip, but not so much along the top of the 4” x 5 ¼” cardstock:
I adhered the two strips of cardstock and placed one each of the 3mm Matte Decorative Dots in dark Cherry Cobbler, dark Bumblebee, and dark Evening Evergreen as shown. I placed the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of stamped Very Vanilla on the inside of the card and lined up the layered strip to adhere to the front flap. I finished the card off by using a piece of Linen Thread that I folded in half and tied into a bow, using a “rolled” glue dot to secure in place:
This is that the inside of the card looks like, plenty of room for your sentiments:
Have you ever tried the baby wipe technique before? This is my first time, which is surprising since I have all the ink refills and always keep baby wipes in my craft room, which are great for cleaning up!
